Two Great Workshops!
How to Plan and Prepare Minis and Mini Floras for the July National Miniature Convention’s Rose Show

A panel of Rosarians will present the tried and true methods they use to prepare those winning entries. Bring your questions!
How to Plan the Design, the Container, the Backboard and Underlay For A Winning Arrangement
Iliana Okum, Design Chair will lead a workshop to help you plan your mini designs with the elements of design — from composition, form, line, space, pattern, colors, texture. Bring your materials to create your backboards and underlays and leave with your ideas in mind to get those designs ready for the show.
Bring your tool box, mini and miniflora roses, if you have some, and your fabrics and boards. Our goal is to inspire one another to get those designs ready. Come out and have some FUN!
